Goalkeeper Ben Foster has hit out at West Brom fans’ abuse of captain Chris Brunt during their defeat to Everton on Saturday, as they lost 2-0 at the Hawthorns.
And some of the Albion supporters showed their frustration at long-serving midfielder Chris Brunt, and England goalkeeper Foster was baffled to hear the Northern Ireland international targeted.
“If you’re getting ridiculed and abused like that it affects you and there’s no need for it,” he said.
“It is really silly. It doesn’t help at all. It’s pathetic, to be honest. These are our supporters and we need our supporters to support us and not do things like that.”
“It’s not nice. It is absolutely ridiculous that somebody who has been an incredible servant to this club for such a long time gets that.”
“We’re four games in. We’re not even thinking about pressure. We are definitely a much better team than last season but it’s just not going for us at the minute.”
